A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: Granada - IES Abroad in Granada
My study abroad experience was most definitely worthwhile. I will be back there this summer. I made Spanish friends, but I also made close bonds with my fellow IES Granada classmates. Overall I created a third home and another family. - Ithaca College View Entire Review
Yes! After being abroad and having such a positive experience, my partner and I plan on moving back to Spain for at least a year after graduating college. I also plan on visiting several other times. I am excited to see my city from a different point of view, and also to visit some of the people I met while there, mostly my host... - Ithaca College View Entire Review
It was the most formative academic experience for me in terms of defining my future/career goals and plans. I know I want to keep travel and Spanish speaking skills as part of my future plans, and I value cultural and people skills much more strongly for any potential career than I did before studying abroad. I am hoping to re... - Tufts University View Entire Review
My study abroad experience encouraged me to pursue Spanish as a second major upon returning to my home institution. I returned with a new perspective and a strength in international knowledge. My plans for this summer include working for an investment manager in its global department, which was clinched by my experience with Spa... - Bowdoin College View Entire Review
It was more than I could have ever expected and can't even be explained in words. I only feel extreme gratitude for being able to experience what I was able to experience in Spain and everywhere I was able to go. - Tulane University View Entire Review
I gained more confidence and became more out-going. - Barnard College View Entire Review
It was absolutely worthwhile and had an amazing time, I just wish I had done a lot of things differently. Future students: do not let anything hold you back while you are there, you will regret it. Take advantage of everything!!! - Ithaca College View Entire Review
Put simply, I changed my major and changed my career plan. I hope to return to Spain next year as a cultural ambassador. - Trinity University View Entire Review
yes, my volunteer position made everything so much more worthwhile. I also learned that I am capable of finding my own activities and exploring a place on my own. - Tufts University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: Granada - IES Abroad in Granada
What I realized most studying abroad in Granada was that Spanish people (and probably a lot of non-Americans) are much more relaxed. And I've been trying to adopt some of that into my life to enjoy life more and be less stressed. It's a beautiful thing. - Occidental College View Entire Review
Past Review Viva Granada!
This is a loaded question. Granada taught me to relax a little more and to enjoy life a lot more. It exposed me to the joys of different cultures and made me a more globally aware citizen. Granada forced me to speak Spanish and, though it was extremely difficult (and downright awkward at times), I persevered and am so much the b... - Spelman College View Entire Review
I have become a more focused, confident and active student because of it. I gained a better understanding on how to live my life, which is to say, I gained a more Spanish outlook on life, which is to follow what makes you happy, and if it isn't making you happy, leave it behind. I plan to move back to Granada at some point. - Tulane University View Entire Review
I'll be returning in the summer. - Tulane University View Entire Review
Yes! I learned so much about the Spanish people and culture and my Spanish also improved to near fluency. I now want to return to work in Spain or a Latin American nation. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Past Review
The experience was definitely worthwhile and I really enjoyed it. It helped me become more independent and made me expand my understanding of the world. My Spanish has gotten a million times better and I had a wonderful time. - Rice University View Entire Review

About

Many travelers who visit Granada insist it’s the must-see city in all of Spain. With one of the clearest windows into Spain’s unique historical symbiosis of Islam, Christianity, and Judaism, Granada is also a youthful city with a vibrant student life that will make meeting new friends even easier—Granada awaits!

Our curriculum takes full advantage of Andalusia and all southern Spain has to offer. The program offers two unique program options that are designed to improve your Spanish proficiency: the Intermediate Spanish Program and Advanced Spanish Program.

Students placed in the Intermediate Program take IES Abroad courses in both English and Spanish. The Advanced Program courses are conducted entirely in Spanish, including study at the Universidad de Granada. Both options introduce you to Spain’s Moorish heritage and Jewish past, and its continuing links to North Africa through Islamic and Contemporary North African Studies. Advanced students can also experience Arabic language courses of all levels, at the Universidad de Granada. You can also add
international work experience to your résumé while earning credit by participating in an internship
placement and accompanying academic seminar.
